Brisbane Strikers FC have agreed to appoint Mr Paolo Ucchino as Project Director to ensure that our intentions regarding the future possible development of Perry Park, whilst working with YMCA. will be dealt through one point of communication. This will include all design development, engineering, architectural and related matters required for the application process for the Development Application for Master-Plan Staged Development.
Mr Ucchino was also appointed as a Brisbane Strikers Board Member.
Mr Ucchino will be seeking approvals through Brisbane City Council, Queensland State Government Infrastructures, and the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games organisations on behalf of Brisbane Strikers and YMCA. Our Development Application is planned to hold a Brisbane City Council pre-lodgement once YMCA have concluded new leasing commitments for our shared arrangement at Perry Park.
Mr Ucchino will also follow through into each staged building approval, and oversee construction of planned staged works. These works will be in consultation with YMCA, our partners on the Perry Park site.
It is anticipated that proposed designs will include overhead footbridge from Bowen Hills railway station into an upgraded boutique stadium that includes other development opportunities to ensure a self-sustainable funded outcome for Brisbane Strikers FC. Our strategy is to become B-league or A-League standalone competitors.
There is no commitment on seating capacity until all engineering designs examine the complexities and financial obligations with all levels of government and engage local community consultation.
Mr Ucchino will control all communication in regards to this Project and all media communication will be approved at Board level before release. There will be no discussions to media outside of these controls to prevent confusion and misleading information to the public.
Mr Ucchino has confirmed a maximum period of 2 years is required to secure development approval over this entire complex site. There will be approved updates provided by Mr Ucchino to the public in due course to control the accuracy of information.
